About the Art Department:
The Art Department is under the direction of Elizabeth E. Schuch, an award-winning Production Designer experienced in creating visuals for Theatre in the US, Film in Europe, and Television in Britain.

She’s the artist behind the visuals of the acclaimed BBC Series ‘Inside the Human Body,’ and is known for her texture-rich, organic style. Passionate about architecture and good at making use of tight resources, Elizabeth is versatile and practical.

In our arsenal, we have a network of experienced artists in Costume Design, Hair & Makeup, Puppetry, Props, and Circus/Aerial Arts to pull onto projects as needed.
